Countdown to Moshiach: Worldwide Atzeres Tefillah at 11 AM EST


 asifaA worldwide atzeres tefillah for Moshiach and world peace will take place at 11 a.m. EST, 5 p.m. Israel time, today, three days before Yom Kippur.

The event will take place in California at 8 a.m., in London at 4 p.m., Paris at 5 p.m., and in Australia at 1 a.m. Monday morning.

“This unique event in Jewish history has been sponsored by motivated Jewish people with help and brachos of rabbonim around the world of all affiliations — Ashkenazim, Sefardim, Chassidim — with a strong desire that all Jews will be united at the same instant, observant or not, whatever beliefs, affiliation, age, nationality to end all tzaros and to welcome the revelation of Hashem’s Name.”

The effort has ostensibly received the haskamos of Rav Nissim Karelitz and Rav Chaim Kanievsky.

A YouTube video explaining the day has been viewed more than 90,000 times. Click here to watch it.

  1. HKB”H sent us into Golus to live amongst people of other nationalities. He told us to be civil and have sincere kindness, to our new neighbors, and then we will be Zocheh to have the Geulah Shleimo.
    We must explain to our children, that the Memreh in the Gemoroh, regarding the Umos being our Avodim in Yemois Hamoshiach, does not mean what it sounds like.
    Chas Vesholam to be Mispallel for Moshiach while having in mind, that our Shochen will be an Eved.

  2. For those of us who don’t have access to YouTube. Can someone explain who organized this and why it has not been heard about till the last minute.

  3. “The effort has ostensibly received the haskamos of Rav Nissim Karelitz and Rav Chaim Kanievsky”

    Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Thats a good one.

    I saw the video. Ridiculous! T I didn’t see any mainstream Rav on it!

  4. Rabbi Sitruk, who requests everyones participation in this effort is the chairman of the presidium of the Conference of European Rabbis, past president of the CER and former Chief Rabbi of France.I would say that is mainstream.

  5. Go ahead. Edit out the truth! You (Matzav), print these “hit & run” piece’s! You print this garbage, then refuse to allow people to prove to you how rediculous this is! Your immaturity is glaring! We all know you have a corrupt agenda but that’s ok!

  6. As Maimonides and Aryeh Kaplan explain the male figure descended patrlineally from David via Solomon who is prophesied to attain sovereignty which will be of benefit to the Jewish people and all of humankind at some point in human history has a number of roles and responsibilities. He is a : Wise Counsellor/Teacher; Judge; Healer; Righteous Redeemer; Prophet; and Human Being. To do his job and complete his divinely mandated mission he must be recognised, installed, supported and heeded.

  7. “The effort has ostensibly received the haskamos of Rav Nissim Karelitz and Rav Chaim Kanievsky.”

    I promise you that Maran HaRav Chaim Kanievsky Shelita, and Moran Harav Nissim Karelitz Shelita are most definitely NOT in support of this Messianic propaganda.

  8. hopefully this will help, IF we all return to achdus in klal yisroel on all levels-from frum, frei chasiidish etc…- then Hashem can bring us Mashiach, cause the klal yisroel cannot stand as a nation without achdus. & its one of the major reasons why mashiach has not arrived yet.

    another reason mashiach is not here yet, is the sinas Chinam that is going on in klal yisroel today, if you knew how bad it is you wouldn’t believe it. the Sinas Chinam today is worse then the generation of the second bais Hamikdosh, that was destroyed for this reason. how can we expect it back, if can’t love every yid on his/her level & be mevatter sometimes for the same of shalom?

    in that zchus of making shalom & loving every yid, may mashiach come ASAP

  9. to # 7
    we daven everyday 3 times asking for mashiach

    in yiddishkeit, if a person wants something (be it a livlihood, shidduch or child etc…) a person needs to do more then just daven & say tehillim, the person needs to also YEARN for it.-sadly- in today’s society we are living in, we are not YEARNING for the Bais Hamikdosh, we have everything from planes to cars & computers etc… even the gift of Shabbos for Gashmius to sleep & relax etc… HASHEM SAYS to klal yisroel, come back to me when your ready & ask me for something from your HEART & i will give you whatever you want (i’m sure if your child came to you for something you would get it, why wouldn’t you? the love between a parent & child is unlimited…. & that’s the way Hashem loves EACH & EVERY ONE OF US)

  10. TO #7 & everyone else
    All of us have heard, read & seen tons of true stories of people who had their first child at 42 or had a sick child in critical condition, & then the doctor says i’m very sorry but your daughter has only 3 hours to live & then he comes back 2 hours later & says its really a miracle but your child is beginning to recover etc…. Why is it that they finally had a child & the child recovered? There could be tons of answers, but the most common answer Is a Pasuk we say 3 times a day in Davening. Hashem is close to all who call to him, to all who call out truthfully. (Tehillim 145)Because they cried out from their heart, they really meant what they were saying when they davened to H-shem to have a baby or for his daughter to recover etc…. there’s a reason we call Hashem, Avinu She’bashamayim (our father in heaven) Hashem loves us from a father to a son & is waiting to put his Shchina (presence) & his bais hamikdosh back in this world. If we really cried out for the Bais Hamikdosh from our heart with truth & show that we are missing it, then we wouldn’t still be in Golus today.

  11. I received an email from one of the main organizers where he CLAIMS that when he went to R’ Chaim, R’ Chaim said, “Bracha v”hatzlacha.” Which, as anyone who has ever been there knows, is Rav Chaim’s generic response to virtually any Yid who walks in the door.

    Now if you read their actual press release, you’ll see that it does NOT say endorsed by Rav Chaim Kanievsky. It says it was blessed by R’ Chaim.

    It’s all in the nuance!
